James Harvey was a war veteran who lived and farmed in the Mirboo North area for many years. James valued education and the lifelong benefits that students gain through continuing their education beyond the compulsory years. Although James had no children of his own, he firmly believed that opportunities given to students befitted the community as a whole and in his estate left an amount of money to be invested by Mirboo North Secondary College for the purposes of educational scholarships.
Scholarships are awarded annually, for the following year; for further information regarding the next round of application funding, please contact Mirboo North Secondary College.
Applications for the 2020 James Harvey Scholarships are now closed.
